I can’t believe that I’m writing this post from Kyoto right now.
Going to Japan is something that I’ve been waiting to do ever since I played my first Mario game on the NES. While I don’t particularly know why I didn’t do it sooner, I definitely think that it was worth waiting for and that it’s happening at the most perfect time possible for me. Freelancing has given me the time and the money to actually take the trip on my terms, Stefan working hard on overcoming his fear of flying is providing me with one of the best travel buddies I can think of and with JG, Woolie and Jess’ recommendations, not a single second spent here will be wasted. It’s gonna be such an awesome trip. I can just feel it!
I think that over the next two weeks, I’ll do 3 posts chronicling my trip through glorious Nippon with Stefan: the first will cover our trip over here and our days spent in Kyoto, Osaka and Nara. The second will be about our two days learning about the second World War from a Japanese perspective in Hiroshima and the last will probably concern itself with the wacky adventure I’m sure we’ll have in Tokyo. I can’t wait!
